Scaredy Cat flying through the clouds wearing a red cape

Scaredy Cat 

Little cat, big responsibility

Can you help Scaredy overcome her fears? Join Helpmann Award-winning company Terrapin Puppet Theatre for the world premiere of Australia's bravest cat.

A feisty feline fantasia for all ages!

Scaredy Cat comes from a long line of fierce hunters, hired for the biggest jobs, with the sneakiest rodents. When an urgent call comes in, it’s Scaredy’s turn to do the family proud. Only problem is, she’s terrified of mice.

Trapped in an old basement with three cunning mice, Scaredy feels all alone. Or so she thinks. As the antique furniture in the basement comes creakily to life, a whole new world of characters is revealed, teaching Scaredy a lesson about courage she'll never forget.
